MTN Uganda in partnership with ATechnos have today launched a first of its kind across MTN markets —a free gaming service dubbed “MTN GoGames” to offer MTN customers access to a huge catalogue of mobile games that can be played with or without any gaming experience. However, the service has a selection of premium games for advanced game-players, which may be played at a small fee of as low as UGX500 per day or UGX3000 per month.
The games can be played with or without data.
Somdev Sen, MTN Uganda Chief Marketing Officer said the service is launched to deliver simple fun to MTN customers and break away for awhile from the seriousness that is happening.
“We’ve created a platform that delivers simple fun to our customers at any point in time. The past year has without a doubt been intense, and even as we take on this year, several serious situations lie ahead of us. We however believe that MTN GoGames will enable us to take a break from all the seriousness and have some fun even if it is just for a few minutes as we unwind,” said Sen.
“We are excited to partner with MTN to offer this service,” said Apurv Modi, Co-Founder and Managing Director of ATechnos.
